Powerful social development videos

From the funny to the shocking to the downright heartbreaking, these powerful videos compiled by the Social Media for Development blog, effectively raise awareness about pressing international development and humanitarian issues.

These are the types of videos communications professionals working in the development and humanitarian fields should strive towards. Take a look and see for yourselves via the link above, or view a selection below. You’ll notice that all of them tell personal or compelling stories, while using powerful imagery. What’s more, all of the videos are under two minutes, and a few are under one. This is an essential approach to maximize views and engagement in today’s attention economy.
